Quadring is a small village and civil parish in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies on the A152, north-east from Gosberton, and 2 miles south-east from Donington.

The village includes the community of Barholme to its south-west. To the east of Quadring is Quadring Eaudike, and to the west is Quadring Fen. Nearby to the west is the Peterborough to Lincoln Line. The A152 (as Main Road within the village) transects Quadring and provides links to Spalding, Boston, Donington and Gosberton.

The village name is derived from the Old English "cwead+haefer+ingas" (Muddy settlement of Haefer), and is recorded in the Domesday Book as Quadheveringe and Quedhaveringe.

The Grade I listed village church, dedicated to St Margaret of Antioch, lies north of, and separate from, the village. Mainly an example of Perpendicular architecture, it was rebuilt in 1872.

Other listed buildings include a Grade II cottage, house, granary, coaching house, farm, and farm house.
